| VMLMAT solves this culture clash by returning control of the individual Linux
| VM's to the end user that "owns" them. It is not the exact same thing as
| having a physical big red button, or the server tucked under the desk, but
| via a standards compliant, any browser should work, web page they can
| shutdown, restart, or rebuild their Linux to any version of Linux in the
| repository. This is something like Vmware's VI Client, except that it adds
| provisioning to the mix, and where Vmware has snapshots, VMLMAT has archives.
| Not the same thing, though they can function in the same role more or less.
| Now the Operators are focused on the things that need their physical
| presence, the sysprogs are working on more technical things, such as putting
| the latest version of Linux into the archive so that all can benefit from it.
| Install once, run many (tm).
| And of course, the reboots are happening right when they are requested.
| Everyone is much happier
